Re: coconut fiber
I grow most of my aroids (Anthuriums, Dracontium, Amorphs etc) in a compost
composed of about 4 parts coconut fibre, 1 part fine bark chunks and one half
part perlite and have had great success with it. As long as you feed
regularly it makes a good, free draining but moisture retaining compost and
doesnt deplete the already damaged peat supplies of the world.
